is Monarch #9 out of 30 I plan to do. If you have a great Monarch
photo you would like to see in paint, please send it to me. I do not
have 30 of my own! These paintings are for a project I am working on
and are NFS, but I hope you are enjoying my little foray into
This second image is Monarch #7 revised. After studying it for a couple of days I decided to add some fun and darker value to the background. Although this doesn't really "read" as sky, like it previously did, I think it is much more interesting and artistic, which is after all what I am attempting to do. I heard a good quote today from some TV production about being an artist is about facing a new mystery every day and having the opportunity to learn a new lesson. It is a long job description, but that is how I feel about what I do.
